There are plenty of Melbourne caravan parks to choose from. Use this guide to help you find a suitable Melbourne caravan park for you.
Each tourist has their own idea of what type of accommodation suits them the best.
Travelling with a large family, or kids?
Then a caravan park will be much more relaxing, affordable and suited to your needs.
Travellers with pets also venture to caravan parks for room and board because most caravan and holiday parks are pet friendly.
While many tourists do not relate a caravan park with a vacation in Melbourne, Australia, the concept is becoming widely popular.
The parks are no longer the simple and basic style of accommodation that many people once thought that they were. The parks now have the same types of amenities as many of the hotels. The parks are rated in star levels just like regular hotels, and you can search for them according to popularity and class.
Melbourne Caravan Park #1: Ashley Gardens
Ashley Gardens is a 5 star holiday park located at 129 Ashley Street, Braybrook. You will be located within 9 kilometres of the Melbourne city centre, while still experiencing a more quiet and country atmosphere. Ashley Gardens is located minutes from the airport and major freeways, as well as offering public transportation to the city centre.
When planning your accommodation with Ashley Gardens, you can choose from:
1 bedroom deluxe villa
2 bedroom family deluxe villa
3 bedroom villa
4 sleeper family cabin
6 sleeper family cabin
Guests with families typically request a villa or cabin overlooking the swimming pool for easy access and the ability to watch the kids easier. On the grounds of the caravan park there is a recreation room, TV room, Internet lounge, camp kitchen, heated swimming pool, shopping centre, tennis courts, BBQÃ¯Â¿Â½s, and guest laundry facilities.
Melbourne Caravan Park #2: Blue Gum Caravan and Cabin Park
Farther up from the Ashley Gardens is the Blue Gum Caravan and Cabin Park. Blue Gum is located on the corner of Cooper Street and Sydney Road (2110-2118 Sydney Road) in Campbellfield. Previously this part was called Hume Highway.
While the name is an eye catcher, the amenities are very high class and updated. Unlike Ashley Gardens, Blue Gum is a long term residential caravan park that is made to suit all types of budgets. The friendly village atmosphere is what makes the park so popular. The city centre of Melbourne is only 15 minutes away from the park and minutes from the regional shopping centres.
All cabins are furnished with double beds, tables and chairs, kitchens, living furniture, and refrigerators, along with a shower and toilet. Outside is a private car parking area adjacent to your cabin. The bunkhouses are smaller and for the more budget-conscious. The bunkhouses have verandas with a table and chairs, as well as residential key access to communal showers, toilets, and kitchen facilities. Laundry facilities are also included. Visit their website for more details.
Melbourne Caravan Park #3: Apollo Gardens Caravan Park
Up above Blue Gum Caravan Park is the Apollo Gardens Caravan Park. It is located at 284-290 Sydney Road (previously Hume Highway), in Craigieburn. The city centre of Melbourne is a little over 20 minutes away via car and a bus stopping in front of the caravan park can take you to the station for a short trip (35-40 minutes) into the city by train.
My family and I stayed at this caravan park for six weeks when we first moved to Australia and we were very happy with it. This top rated tourist park is both residential and corporate with village accommodations as well a facility for self storage. Arriving in hot February, we often went to waterfall pool for a refreshing dip. There is also a spa.
Many people use the Apollo Gardens accommodations due to the fact that the area is pet friendly. The sites are very large with open spaces big enough for the largest RV or recreational vehicle. The premises have more than 75 cabins, and 44 drive up sites for camping space. You can stay days, weeks, or even months depending on the length of time that you desire. For more details visit their website.
Vacations do not always require five class resort hotels.
While a luxurious commercial hotel is suitable for couples or travellers who are alone, they are not always suitable for children or large groups.
A caravan park is much more affordable and accommodating and not necessarily of worse quality.
